On Tom Cruise's 50th birthday, a day that we imagine would have been full of ice cream cake and presents, Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes headed to an ice cream shop sans the birthday boy. Only days after Holmes filed for divorce from her husband of five years, she and her six-year-old daughter took a break for a late night treat in New York City, looking none the worse for wear.

The pair shared some ice cream and sweet moments, ignoring the number of fans watching their every move. Holmes stepped out for the first time post-split on Monday to swarms of photographers, but this is the time first we've seen the mother-daughter duo since the divorce was announced.

Though the drama of one of the biggest, and potentially ugliest splits in Hollywood, rages on, Suri and her mom seem to be going about their business as usual.
